Support the fight against animal overpopulation
Every year, thousands of stray and unwanted animals are euthanized in shelters across the country. Many of these deaths are the avoidable result of owners failing to spay or neuter their pets. Unexpected offspring often fill shelters and are never given the chance at happy, loving lives.
An ovariohysterectomy (spaying) is a routine surgical procedure performed on female cats and dogs. The process involves removing the patient’s uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, rendering the animal incapable of reproduction.
Spaying offers several benefits, including:
- Prevents unwanted pregnancies
- Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine tumors
- Removes the possibility of uterine infections
- Reduces the risk of mammary tumors
Castration (neutering) is a routine surgical procedure performed on male cats and dogs. This process removes the animal’s testicles, making them unable to impregnate females.
Neutering offers several benefits, including:
- Prevents unwanted reproduction
- Eliminates the risk of testicular and prostate tumors
- Has the potential to reduce certain unwanted behaviors
